Introductory Workshop: Geometric and Arithmetic Aspects of Homogeneous Dynamics February 02, 2015 - February 06, 2015

The talk will be concerned with a property of lattices in the geometry of numbers which I refer to as "almost sure grid-DV with respect to a function F". The goal of the talk will be three-fold:

(1) Discuss a theorem relating this property to the dynamics of the lattice under the invariance group of the function.

(2) Apply the theorem to various classical discussions and see what it gives (it relates nicely to Minkowski's conjecture and to diophantine exponents).

(3) Discuss a mistake I have in the published paper and some open problems
